        Stunning design and beautiful setting. Pure 5 star luxury but with a boutique feel.

        No complaints.

      • Couple
        4.0

        The hotel is in a nice location.

        They are full of smiles and 'yes sir' but when it actually came to helping with a problem we had with our booking they completely ignored us, blamed the booking agency and charged us for a room we did not use. Very unhelpful and unprofessional. I would not stay at this hotel again.

        It was our honeymoon and we were upgraded to the ocean front room, which I believe was the best room in the hotel.

        While the room was large and had excellent views, it needed updating - windows didn't fully shut, curtains were really old, furniture and linen were ok, but relatively old. But the worst part was the bugs. First I've noticed a few bugs in the sink - they looked like large black ants with wings. As I washed them away more appeared. Then I saw a few on the wall by the bed and next thing I know there were a whole bunch of them crawling over the bed. We killed them and called for housekeeping. Someone came to spray the room, which solved the bug issue for the night, however it still left a disconcerting feeling. Also, they didn't clean up the dead bugs and we saw a ton of dead bugs behind the nightstand next to the bed.

        First visit, location was really lovely, relaxing, was in roon 419 top floor, views were brilliant. Loved the swimming pools, but preferred the one nearer the bar, as it wasn't too deep

        NO ELEVATORS/LIFTS ! Steps to different levels, Not good if you have mobility problems, Walking up to the fourth floor is no joke when its hot or raining!! Hotel is due to increase in size by 20 more rooms, maybe they should incorporate, disable access 'slopes & rails'.

        The hotel has a nice design and amplient rooms and surroundings. Enjoyed being so close to the splashing waves.

        It was too expensive.Tax was very high.Price does not match the hotel and its facilities.outside taxis and three whealers are not allowed to the hotel and theres are double the price'We would certainly discourage any body to go there.

        This is a lovely hotel with great facilities and a stunning location overlooking the ocean. It is not cheap but is worth it if you really want to treat yourself. The rooms are very comfortable.

        The breakfast is very poor for what you are paying. Food runs out quickly - it is like they are trying to ration the food to save money - really must do better!

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        The stay at Jetwing lighthouse was excellant in all respects. It was pricey but I have no complaints as our experience of this hotel gave us great value for money. We stayed at seven hotels in Sri Lanka this was by far the best and the others were good too. If you want to pamper yourself then I would recomend this hotel for food, comfort ,rooms, facilities and a warm and service from the staff.

        Location

        The one meal we had was awful. Check in poor. Lots not working in our room on arrival,

      • Older travelers
        7.8

        Friendly, helpful staff. Great dinner.

        Total chaos and undue delay on checking in without apology or explanation..

      • Single
        5.8

        Good size room. Reasonable facilities. Very friendly and helpful staff but could do with a few more at peak times.

        Good selection of food but of poor quality. Food often overcooked and dry. Lack of attention in dining room. Had to ask several times for coffee which often would not arrive until after finished breakfast. Bar staff at busy times would take 10 minutes to take an order. Could do with more staff in dining room and bar area at peak times. Manager often seen at dinner time but little interaction with guests to seek their views of the service. Fruit bowl in the room needs to be replenished for guests staying more than a couple of days. Having booked the hotel 9 months in advance I was e mailed 3 weeks before the stay informing me that the hotel was being overbooked and I was being moved to another hotel. Only after several e mails and telephone calls to the hotel did they honour the booking.

      • Older travelers
        9.6

        Outstanding in every way. We couldn't fault it. The staff were friendly and courteous from the beach boys to the hostesses and all service was excellent so we felt really spoiled and thoroughly relaxed by the end of ours stay. There was no loud music, the design of the hotel allows you to eat and drink in the bar overlooking the sea. I only wish we could have afforded to stay longer as it was very expensive!

      • Family with children
        8.8

        Pretty much everything. The rooms were old but lovely. Spacious with big beds, good tea and coffee facilities, beauthiful views - we all loved it. The location was right on the beach which my 2 boys just loved. The hotel had a couple of pools and it was in a very short distance to the Fort area. The bathrooms were large and very well equiped. The breakfast was excellent with lots of choice and often much made to order. The manager was around and making sure everyone was content. Overall, a lovley hotel and a definite if you are travelling to Galle.

        The check-in was a bit slow. The bathroom was a bit dark and the walkway to the rooms a bit shabby.

      • Couple
        9.2

        the room was big and the view was great we like every moment of staying there. the two pools were also big and the price we paid i really fair for what we've got.

        the bathroom was quite blury but i supposed thats were the candles for.. i really have nothing bad to say on this hotel, we loved every minute of our honeymoon stay.

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        Everything from the decorations to the locations sound too good to be true! It is not cheap but is worth to stay. Staffs are very friendly and kindness.

        I couldn't light a candle because of the burning wick. But it's not a big problem.
